'Summer Rain' is a warm, progressive tune that starts off with a rhythmic bass and a powerful kick, and turns towards a soft and soothing melodic loop. A slow synth eventually rises, taking over before it rapidly drops in the breakdown, where the listeners are confronted with echoes of tweeting birds, producing an aural illusion of being lost in a heavenly meadow. As the track transitions, the kick returns from below, walking the listeners along the open field while they continue to be surrounded by the sounds of nature.
The Odison remix kicks off steadily but transitions into a more percussive tune with an underlying hi-hat and clap that play over the melodic loop. The synth eventually leads the way as it climbs towards an abrupt and energetic drop. Following the climax, the synth rises once again - this time accompanied by a piano melody - and moves towards another drop that the piano continues to play under.
The Oliver & Tom remix is an energetic, uplifting version with a fat bass and a punchy kick that pave the way for an acidic synth to slowly take over. This track turns up the sound on the hi-hat, mixing it with the loop as it rises, before letting the melody ring solitarily in the breakdown, followed by a rapid and very melodic uplift.
